"I'll show no mercy to those who would thwart my mission!"
Once an age in The Last Blade, a band of deities must perform their Sealing Rite on the weakening Gates of Hell. For in every age, demons from beyond the portal scheme to be reborn in the world of the living. In the mid-nineteenth century, Japan, they seek to halt the Gods' ritual altogether. The Shinsengumi police force send one samurai to investigate matters: Keiichiro Washizuka.
This man was chosen for his recent spy work, with a Kenshin-like facial cross scar added to his résumé. Washizuka's honor and determination to restore order to Japan are equally matched by his bark and his bite. With his katana thrust forward, he executes a stealthy array of rush-ins and stabs to penetrate his opponents' defenses. But is it enough to handle the chaos at Hell's Gates?
